Beginners’ Crochet - Tuesday Evenings - 3rd, 10th & 17th July 7.00pm-8.30pm

Our beginners' crochet courses are three 1.5 hour sessions long, and run on consecutive weeks. 

This course will give you a great introduction into crocheting, and will give you the confidence to take the craft forward and make lovely things for your home, family and friends. 

We only take small groups so you will get lots of attention and help and each course only costs £60.00 for the 3 sessions. 

You will go from being a complete beginner and learn how to:

  • start off/working into a chain
  • perform all the basic stitches
  • work in straight rows
  • work in the round and make granny squares
  • and finally how to crochet granny squares together and how to construct a gorgeous cushion or blanket
